The U.S. General Services Administration this morning
confirmed it is re-considering the U.S. Postal Service‘s former mail sorting
site at 813 Market St.
for a new federal courthouse in Harrisburg.

GSA’s Harrisburg
project manager met with city officials to discuss the project, GSA regional
public affairs officer Gina Blyther Gilliam wrote in an e-mail. She would not
disclose the meeting date.

“During the meeting, various topics were discussed,
including the potential sale of the Market
Street post office,” Blyther Gilliam wrote. “A
decision has not been made at this time.”

Mayor Stephen R. Reed could not immediately be reached for
comment.

Earlier this month, Reed said the Postal Service planned to
sell the site on Market Street.
Its Harrisburg sorting operation, which is a
major mail hub for Central Pennsylvania, now is along Crooked Hill Road in Susquehanna Township.

The post office still has a retail presence at the Market Street site.
Reed said it wants to move to a downtown location with 5,000 to 6,000 square
feet of space. The post office has been at the Market Street site since the 1960s.
